Locked-In Cash Plays

  • DraftKings Cash Picks / FanDuel Cash Picks
  • Borg– I’m willing to pay up for Kyler Murray this week with some of the other top options (Mahomes, Allen, Lamar) off the main slate. I want to lock in 25+ point safety in my cash lineup. Although almost any QB can score that in a given week, it just means that QBs remain the best points per dollar bet each week.
  • Betz– Like last week, I’m not going to take the low hanging fruit and say Derrick Henry, but as you all know, he’s in a great spot. I’ll add Davante Adams into the mix. I absolutely love going back to Adams in this spot against the Bengals. As I wrote about in CB/WR matchups, Adams is going to be moved into the slot often enough to create a huge mismatch with Mike Hilton, Cincy’s worst starting corner.
